  • There is a 7 years between my 1st and 2nd and 22 months between my 2nd and 3rd When #3 came along, it wasn't too bad because big sister was a HUGE help.

  • It wasn't hard for us because our girls are spread apart in age, they are17, 11 and 4. But I have found though that everything seems to cater to families of 4 rather than 5. An example would be ticket packages for family of 4 or resort packages for a family of 4 and so on...

  • Do you really think you have to ask, of course it does, lol.
    The good thing is that your 4 yo will go to school. :)
    It is gonna be harder.

  • the 8 month old wont be, but your 4yr old will. I am about to find out if 3 is hard, I have a 1yr old and a 2 yr old and I am 39 weeks preggers.

  • Well I have five kids on most days and 6 when my step daughter is here. I always joke that after two it all blends together. As long as you have a good system for your kids from the begining and not let them get away with certain behaviors from the start it isn't so bad. Yeah I'm tired all the time, but I guess that comes with the territory. I have a 9 1/2 year old, 8 year old, 3 1/2, 2, and 5 month old. and my SD is 8 too! So yeah, its crazy but you'll be fine as long as you stick to your guns:)

  • I didnt find it really any different than having my original two.. My kids are 6yrs,6yrs,3yrs,8wks.. You know what to expect at that point and its all just easier IMO..
